Knitter's Coffee Swap questionnaire

I'm participating in the Knitter's Coffee Swap, so here is my questionnaire:

1. Whole bean or ground?

Ground. I have a grinder in a pinch, but I typically use it for spices, not beans. Just no weird powder or freeze dried substances.

2. Fully-loaded or decaf?

As loaded as possible, please. I'm a single mother afterall.

3. Regular or flavored?


4. How do you drink your coffee?

First I snort it up my nose, blow it back out, gargle it and swallow. Maybe I don't get this question? Oh, maybe we are talking cream or sugar here? Ok, well in regular coffee I like a little sugar and cream, not milk, cream. Espresso stays espresso in my house, which I love to have after (early enough) dinners.

5. Favorite coffee ever?

This is hard. I confess to being a lover of Starbucks. And when I really need a pick me up, I head for a Triple Grande Vanilla Latte. It makes me happy. Though I don't know if its my favorite, but its damn good.

6. Are you fussy about your coffee or will any old bean do?

Not any old, but it seems, after reading other questionnaires, that I'm less picky than a lot of the swappers. I like most of the top shelf grocery coffees, but can't really look down from there. Coffee from Italian grocers/shops are always welcome.

7. Favorite treats to have with your coffee?

Mmmm...biscotti! Which I also like to make when I have time...any good recipes? I often have dark dark chocolate with the aforementioned after dinner espresso. Morning coffee is just guzzled down with no accompaniments.

8. Anything else about your coffee preferences?

Nope, I like to try new coffees whenever I get a chance. I also like most other hot drinks.

9. Yarn/fiber you love?

Good sock yarn...Lorna's Laces, Socks that rock, Trekking, Noro, Anything that is soft and has subtle color graduations is likely to be completely loved by me.

10. Yarn/fiber you hate?

I'm not so hip on novelty yarns, though I suppose there are exceptions.

11. What's on your needles?

This is always a tricky one for me. Let's see. A blanket for Little A, a blanket for us, 3 pairs of socks, 1 pair of convertible mitts, a sweater for my sister, a bag for my mom, and ummm...I don't know what else. I have K.A.D.D. (Knitting Attention Deficit Disorder)

12. Favorite colors?

Deep...I guess they call them jewel colors on the hip blogs. Purples, Reds, Greens, Blues.

13. Allergies?

No food allergies. Though I'm a vegetarian. No mystery meat in a tube Slim-Jims! Ick.

14. Anything you really love, really don't like, or just need to get off your chest?

Um, I really like to knit. And I really like coffee. Heehee!

I love coffee. LOOOVVVEEEEE. When I'm not pregnant I drink a lot of it. Grind my own beans every day and pay a little extra for the good stuff. In fact, I'm something of a coffee snob.

Now, I'm only allowed one cup a day. I savor that cup more than anything else in my life, let me tell you.

Hey, so please do tell me how you get on these swaps? I would have LOVED to get on this, but see it is closed.

Have you tried carrabassett coffee ? It is my favorite. And the guys there ROCK. I can order my coffee on line late on a Sunday and it is on my doorstep TUESDAY BEFORE LUNCH! My favorite is the rooster roast. I want my favorite to be the big carry organic, but I like the other better. The sumatra decaf is pretty incredible too, but I didn't like the regular sumatras as well...the papual new guinea is similar. The backdraft roast is probably most similar to starbucks, dark and a bit burnt tasting. The have an internet special, order 5# for just under $40. I usually end up ordering the 5 lb bag and 3-5 single pounders. I guess I'm a coffee snob as well. Green mountain is now just ok.

I grew up w/ reglah coffee meaning 1 sugar 1 cream, and forgot one time when I was over the bridge and just ordered coffee, with cream, and they put sugar in it! Yuck. I don't mind it sometimes, but not when I'm not expecting it.

Nick was a good sport about modeling the vest!
